replacing rear break pad..

Ok I was wondering if any one knew how much does it usually cost to replace the rear brake pad on my Gsxr? And most likely having to smooth out the disk as well.. the reason why I ask is because I am assuming my break pad gave out on me.. reason why I say this is because everytime I try braking I feel the pedal "twitching" and luckily I noticed in time that my disk has some pretty bad scratches close to being gashes on it.. so im hoping someone has had there brake pads changed and disk smoothed out as well that could give me a estimate on how much they payed.. and plan b would be to replace it myself if it is not to difficult to do so...? thanks!

Wish I could help. I rarely use my rear therefore I have never had to work on them.

How about giving Motorcycles Unlimited a call?

Werd. Do it yourself. I think it's two bolts. It sounds like you may have warped your rear rotor if you can feel it in the lever. Thats only slightly more involved...

What part of town are you in?
